Re: Bring back the ATP Race!!!!

I second this. The old race system is more exciting and reasonable.

Exactly.

Actually there's just no "new Race"

It seems that Sapeod didn't understand that in the end of the year, the rankings and the race were the same,
then absolutely nothing is changed to qualify for the Masters Cup.

useless old guy

I do understand. Last year's race where the best players that season get in the championships was a better one. If you don't agree that's fine.

And if I said there's a new race, sorry about that.

Don't be. I'm just saying that the race in 2008, 2007 etc is better than just letting the rankings decide.

Re: Bring back the ATP Race!!!!

the race and entry are the same at end of the season...so this doesnt do anything to any player not in the top 8 to start the year...everyone can still make it.

Oh well. In that case it's fine. But I still think they should get back the old race.

Re: Bring back the ATP Race!!!!

Nah i prefer just the one ranking system, so all results and points are accumilated giving precise rankings, without there being a race as well, thats just my opinion tho, think its better with just one ranking system

Re: Bring back the ATP Race!!!!

The point of race was only to track(monitor) progress of players during the course of a season, at the end of the year the race was reflecting rankings. And yes, it will work with only one ranking system.

To show you that I like the Race and I still think it would be very useful, you can see there that we calculate the Race for this year, together with Felipe :

2009 Updated ATP "Race" Thread

Then yes I like the Race

But your point about the fact that it would change anything for the Masters Cup (or whatever the new name) was just bullshit

I didn't like it because I thought it would be unfair to players outside the top 20. But now that someone told me it won't, I'm fine with it. Have you got a problem with that.
